“Rich Men North of Richmond” is a working class anthem that struck a chord with many Americans when it was released in late July. The song, written by Virginia musician Oliver Anthony, speaks to the frustration many feel with wealthy businessmen and corrupt politicians who prioritize their own interests over those of the working man. Anthony has gained attention for his music and recently appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, where he discussed his Christian faith and the inspiration behind his songs.
As with any popular song, there has been speculation about Anthony’s political leanings. While he has not publicly aligned himself with a particular camp, he has criticized Democratic politicians like Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama for their flip-flopping on key issues. Anthony believes that President Trump’s unfiltered and authentic communication style resonates with people who are tired of polished politicians who say one thing and do another.
This singalong moment at the campaign appearance highlights the enthusiasm and connection between President Trump and his supporters. It’s clear that his unapologetic and genuine approach to politics still resonates with many Americans, even after leaving office.
